Norway - Man Acquitted of Rape; Says He Was Asleep
A Norwegian court has acquitted a man accused of raping a sleeping woman after he said he was also asleep at the time.
The 18-year old woman, who had gone to sleep dressed in trousers and a sweater on a sofa after a party with friends, awoke to find the 34-year-old man having sex with her. The man said he was woken by her screams for help.
"He said that he was asleep and the majority of the judges found that they could not rule out the possibility," defense lawyer Christian Riig told NRK public radio on Thursday. ..................
OMG! How could they buy this defense???????The saints are the sinners who keep trying...
